Feedback on Ohuhu Products

The Inky Way

Hello. I recently purchased a 168-pack of Ohuhu "Honolulu" markers. And I'm now going to give my feedback on them!
.
Now to be clear, I have NO complaints about the quality of the ink or the nibs, or even the ergonomics of the marker, given their price point. A triangular grip would be better, but the casing is okay at the moment. The ink is also fantastic. My marker paper loves this ink. It's vivid, it's easy to control, it flows wonderfully. None of my markers are malfunctioning or damaged, and I'm liking the way they look on paper.
.
That said, I do have several complaints.
.
The first and foremost being: The colored plastic on the markers, the "preview" VERY seldom matches the ink it contains. A marker with a very light lilac-purple case could contain a very dark purple. A light orange could contain a dark red. A very light peachy color could be nearly orange. And so forth. R2- Vermillion's cap looks more like a salmon pink than an intense orange-red.
.
More glaring than that, some of the markers have white text on brightly colored plastic, making the number and color very difficult to read. The most egregious example of this is "BR3 - Rose Beige." The text on the cap of the marker should NOT be white. It's almost impossible to read without looking at it directly under a light. Some other markers have this problem as well. R2, R3, R4, R5, YR5 and BR1, though not to the same degree.
.
Also, there are a couple of spelling/grammar errors in the labels as well. Y9, Yellow Ochre, is misspelled "ORCHE" on the marker and the color swatch sheet. Also, B220, "Pale Grayish Blue" is spelled "Grayish", while other markers spell the color family as "grey."

.

Also R19 is labeled as "Barely Beige." It's meant to be BARLEY Beige. Barley as in, the grain.
.
Lastly, I have a complaint about one of the sketchbooks. Specifically, the 210mm × 297mm marker pad. The measurements on the cover correspond to the measurements found on "A4" paper, which is one of the standard sizes used on printers. But upon tearing out one of the perforated pages, it does NOT measure 210mm × 297mm as it says on the cover, it's actually 198mm x 297mm when it's removed from the pad. Apparently the measurement includes the area past the perforation lines. This almost constitutes false advertising. The paper quality itself is fine, it takes the ink wonderfully. But it's still not entirely suitable for printing line art. As I've said in another thread, I would buy a pack of 8.5" x 11" loose (non-book) paper of this sort, if Ohuhu made it available.
.
But again. Like I said, I have no complaints about the quality of ink. I am finding these markers extremely useful, and I do enjoy using them. But hopefully my feedback will help the product line in the future.
